Kendall Jenner Stalker Ends Up by Her Pool ... Ain't No Mountain High Enough

10/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

6:30 AM PT -- We're now told security in the gated community has been significantly beefed up. There is security now on the mountainside and fences have been and are being installed.  In addition, we're told Kendall's team is lobbying the police and the D.A. to file felony stalking charges against Ford.

Kendall Jenner has another scary stalker, and it's gotta be enraging to her because security at her multi-million dollar exclusive gated community left a gaping hole for the guy to enter.

37-year-old John Ford was arrested early last month for breaking into Kendall's gated community, where numerous stars live. Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Charlie Sheen, Christina Aguilera and Slash have all called it home. But, law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Ford had his sights set on Kendall.

Ford pled guilty to trespass and the judge ordered him to stay 1,000 feet from the gated community. Turns out, he didn't follow the order.

We're told shockingly ... last week Ford entered the community -- not through the front gate, but by scaling the mountainside in the back of the complex, where there is apparently no security.

We're told Kendall's security spotted him sitting in her backyard by her pool. By the time cops came, he had skedaddled.

Fast forward to Tuesday, when Ford allegedly came back and scaled the same unsecured mountainside, and ended up sitting on Kendall's front porch. Security spotted him again, called the cops and this time they nabbed him.

Ford, a Canadian citizen, is now being held on a 5150 psychiatric hold. LAPD's Threat Management Unit is on the case, and we're told Kendall's lawyer, Shawn Holley, will also get a civil protective order. He's also been charged with criminal trespass and violating a protective order.

As for the gated community -- the place where Kendall dropped $8.5 mil last year for a secure home --  someone's gotta build a wall, right?

Drake Drops Bars, Serves Trays of Mickey D's At Concert After-Party

10/18/2018 7:02 AM PDT

Drake just knew his fans were hungry for more ... of him and evidently McDonald's.

Champagne Papi showed up to Poppy in WeHo Wednesday night and didn't come empty-handed ... serving up trays upon trays of cheeseburgers and french fries. Needless to say, the crowd was lovin' it.

Drake had just finished his concert with Migos at The Forum but he wasn't done quite yet. At the nightclub, he grabbed the mic and gave the crowd a bonus performance.

The place was poppin' -- packed like sardines in there -- but everyone seemed to be able to get their hands on some late night grub. Basically, he saved everyone from a drive-thru run on their way home.

Drake's L.A. shows already included bringing LeBron James onstage for his Staples Center gig ... but feeding an entire club's gonna win him even more fans.

So, the answer is yes, Drake fans -- you CAN get some fries with that shake.

Ex-USA Gymnastics President Arrested by U.S. Marshals ... Connected to Nassar Case

10/18/2018 6:01 AM PDT
Breaking News

Steve Penny -- the former president of USA Gymnastics -- was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Tennessee on Wednesday stemming from allegations he tampered with evidence in the Larry Nassar case. 

Officials say Penny went to the famed Karolyi Ranch training facility in Texas and removed documents linked to Nassar's sexual assault case.

It's interesting considering one of Penny's former top staffers testified back in June that she told him about Nassar's misconduct and was told to keep her mouth shut. 

The Walker County District Attorney says Penny was indicted by a grand jury roughly 3 weeks ago. They tracked him down at a cabin in Tennessee this week and took him into custody. 

"The indictment further alleges that the removal of the documents was done for the purpose of impairing the ongoing investigation by destroying or hiding the documents," the U.S. Marshals said.

Prosecutors say Penny had the documents be sent to him at USA Gymnastics headquarters in Indianapolis. Officials still have not located the documents. 

If convicted, Penny -- who resigned as USA Gymnastics president in 2017 -- faces up to 10 years in prison.

Attorney John Manly -- whose firm represents more than 180 of Nassar's sexual assault victims -- says his clients are "grateful" for the arrest. 

"Mr. Penny is exactly where he belongs for his enabling a pedophile."

"These brave young women and girls deserve justice."

'L&HH' Star Tommie Lee Busted Again for Stalking Daughter After Child Cruelty Arrest

10/18/2018 6:55 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Tommie Lee got her dumb ass hauled into jail Wednesday night for stalking of her own daughter ... just 24 hours after Tommie allegedly slammed the child into a school locker the day before.

The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star outdid herself, even by her own low standards, by getting arrested TWICE within 24 hours. The first bust came Tuesday night when she was booked for battery, aggravated assault and child cruelty. Cops say Tommie unloaded on one of her daughters at the child's middle school in Cobb County, GA.

Tommie posted a $27k bond and was released Wednesday morning at 4:40 AM -- but she was also slapped with a court order to stay away from the daughter.

Apparently, she just couldn't stick with that program. She violated the order by making contact with her daughter within 3 hours of getting out of jail.

Tommie was back in handcuffs Wednesday night, and she's currently being held without bail.

Tekashi69 Time to Make Big Changes ... It's Career First Now!!!

10/18/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 is ready to make his career a top priority and to make it happen ... some heads are gonna roll. 

Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ ... Tekashi and his closest confidants are downsizing his entourage. From here on out, he only wants music biz professionals around him who are focused on making him the biggest star possible. 

We're told Tekashi's riding high after a successful international tour, and wants to reap the benefits by making life better for himself and his family. He's been spending way more quality time with his GF and his 2-year-old daughter. 

You'd have to say ... it's a great time for him to clean up his act. As we reported, his old home was raided a couple weeks ago. Although cops found a gun, Tekashi said it wasn't his and he wasn't living there. The insinuation is clear ... he's had some bad seeds hanging around.

We're told his longtime manager and CEO of the label, Tr3way, will only be bringing people onboard who can produce for Tekashi. The rebrand is already in the works too, 'cause sources say Tekashi is planning for a major city national tour here in the States.

Just a couple months ago, 6ix9ine told us he was nervous about ending up back in prison for one of his court cases. 

From the sound of it ... someone's been scared straight.

EXCLUSIVE

Floyd Mayweather says he ain't done with Conor McGregor -- telling TMZ Sports he'll give the Irishman a rematch in the boxing ring right after he tunes up Khabib Nurmagomdov

"McGregor was talking that sh*t, so it ain't over," Floyd told us while shopping in Bev Hills this weekend.

"After me and Khabib lock up, me and McGregor we gonna lock up again."

As we previously reported, Floyd says he'll accept Khabib's challenge and will fight him in the boxing ring sometime in the near future, because it'll do "crazy numbers."

Floyd says he expects to make a 9-figure check from the Khabib fight -- and a rematch with Conor could be just as successful. 

"I'm ready to go out there and get the job done and entertain. 'Cause me and McGregor Mayweather was real entertaining. I gave people what they wanted to see."

Floyd also says his fights with UFC stars are helping the sport of MMA -- telling TMZ Sports, "I'm helping keep combat sports alive!"

Of course, Conor and Floyd clashed back in August 2017 -- with Floyd dominating most of the fight and ultimately getting a TKO in the 10th round. 

Khabib says he'll fare better than Conor -- claiming he outstruck McGregor when they fought at UFC 229

Tommy tells TMZ ... the United States and the rest of the world needs to get with the program and follow the Canadian trailblazers ... because getting blazed is just way too beneficial to be illegal.

Third Eye Blind Sued I Want Something Else ... My 'Semi-Charmed' Kinda Dough!!!

10/18/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

So, this is how it's gonna be -- Kevin Cadogan is so done waiting for Third Eye Blind to cough up cash, the ex-lead guitarist is suing the band and its frontman, Stephan Jenkins.

In the suit, obtained by TMZ, Kevin says he's never been paid his cut from the band's re-released debut album -- and, as a founding member, he says he's owed at least 25 percent of the profits. 

Kevin says he co-wrote and co-created the songs "Kiss Goodnight," "Scattered," "Heroin" and the band's "Semi-Charmed Life." All 4 are featured on the re-released debut, so he's expecting to get paid for them.

Further, Kev -- who left the band in 2000 -- says Stephan cut him off from royalties on a slew of the band's other hits. 

He's suing for a court order establishing him as a copyright holder on all the disputed tracks ... as well as an accounting on how much money the songs have generated. His ultimate goal? Getting his fair share of the pie.

Harvey Weinstein Lead Det. Told Victim to Delete Info from Her Phone

10/17/2018 6:09 PM PDT

The case against Harvey Weinstein suffered a massive blow when prosecutors had to admit the lead detective on the case advised one of the alleged victims to delete information from her phone.

Prosecutors sent a letter Wednesday to Weinstein's attorney, Ben Brafman, informing him that NYPD Det. Nicholas DiGaudio had a conversation with the alleged rape victim about the contents of her phone before she turned it over to the D.A.'s Office.

According to the letter, the woman was concerned about prosecutors seeing things on her phone. It's unclear if that info was relevant to the case -- but the problem for prosecutors is, according to the letter, Det. DiGaudio told her to delete anything she was concerned about, and added ... "we just won't tell [the assistant D.A]." 

It's a huge setback for the prosecution, especially on the heels of the Lucia Evans bombshell. As we reported, DiGaudio failed to disclose a witness statement to prosecutors -- and, as a result, the sexual assault charge against Weinstein was dropped.

The D.A.'s Office says it's still moving forward with the case against Weinstein.

Brafman tells TMZ, "Only those totally uninformed would suggest that these are 'technical' issues. Nothing is further from the truth. The fact is that these issues undermine the fundamental integrity of the judicial process. This case is falling apart because it is a fundamentally bad case and bad cases eventually fall apart even when law enforcement officials try and stack the deck against the accused."

ShamWow Guy Wife Files for Divorce

10/17/2018 3:16 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Vince Offer -- the guy made famous by the ShamWow infomercials -- apparently couldn't soak up the problems in his marriage ... and his wife has officially filed for divorce.

Offer married Melody Barney in Malibu in 2014, and she submitted divorce papers -- obtained by TMZ -- Wednesday in L.A. to start the process to make them legally single.

According to the divorce docs, Barney is asking for legal and physical custody of their 4-year-old daughter. She says Offer can have visitation time. She's also asking for spousal support.

Vince hatched the ShamWow idea back in 2006, and the commercial made him famous in 2009 ... and it only cost $20,000 to make. 

Offer had some legal issues ... back in 2009, he was arrested for allegedly hiring a prostitute who bit his tongue during a hookup and wouldn't let go until he punched her. Both Offer and the woman were arrested for felony aggravated battery.

Offer hasn't done a whole lot since the ShamWow days ... with a few acting and voice acting credits to his name.

Breaking News

Cardi B is getting a ton of stuff off her chest ... railing on social media, baby pics and a TMZ post about her new music. 

Cardi was hot as fish grease when she hopped on IG live -- taking issue with our story about whether she's going to diss Nicki Minaj on some new music she's recording.

She's also pissed about the photos of her and baby Kulture on a Miami hotel balcony. And, she's pissed because she claims that photogs were stalking her. For the record, we weren't involved in taking those pictures -- but they did come to us, and we did post them. 

While unloading -- for nearly an hour from the backseat of her ride -- she said celebrities didn't sign up for this, but insisted she could handle it ... 'cause she's a "tough bitch."

She also ripped into fan blogs, some she's had to block, and compared the music industry to the strip club biz. She said stripping is exactly like being a rapper in many ways, but also made it clear ... "I don't want to go back to the strip club!"

And, then there was the sex talk ... LOTS and LOTS of sex talk. Cardi shared in graphic detail why she knows Offset's never leaving her. In a nutshell, "Cardi B got that fat bitch p***y." And, that's the tamest thing she said about her sexual skills.

As for why she had to share all this -- "I'm a Libra so I overthink everything."
